Peshawar

what should be here?

Gor Khatri literally meaning "Warrior's Grave" is a caravanserai built over the site of ancient ruins in Peshawar, Pakistan. 

Gorkhatri in the ancient city of Peshawar was identified by Alexander Cunningham with the Kanishka stupa, while Professor Dr. Ahmad Hasan Dani identified it with the place where the famous tower of the Buddha bowl once stood.

Gorkhatri is a typical Mughal-era serai and is located on one of the highest points of Peshawar city. It is a fortified compound consisting of an area of 160x160 square meters. It has two prominent gateways: one in the east and one in the west. The Gorakshanath temple is situated in the centre, a network of cells and buildings in the southern and western side of the complex and a fire brigade building, which was built in 1917.
